Epidemiology of COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a preventable and treatable disease in responsible for human and economic burden around the world. Cigarette smoking is the fundamental hazard factor for COPD in the developed world, although other essential risk factors incorporate word related exposures, air contamination, airway route hyper responsiveness, asthma, and hereditary predisposition. In the vast majority of the world, COPD prevalence and mortality keep on rising in light of increases in smoking, especially by women and adolescents. COPD is likewise an imperative reason for disability, and is connected to comorbid diseases, for example, depression and cardiovascular disease, which adds to the large economic burden related with this issue. Better public health and medical intercessions that target both the risk factors for COPD and look toward prior mediation may decrease growing public health impact of COPD.
